Monsta X is being hit with a lot recently, and the latest thing to be addressed by Starship Entertainment regards member Shownu. Han Seo Hee recently posted a DM received by Jung Da Eun from a man claiming that his wife had an affair with Shownu.
Starship released a statement addressing the issue.
Shownu was in contact with the woman in question prior to her marriage. The woman got married recently around August, but our agency confirmed that Shownu did not know at all because the woman did not tell Shownu. Her husband contacted the agency, so we met up with him, and the whole story was explained. Afterwards, Shownu, who belatedly found out about her marriage, no longer contacted this woman at all. Shownu revealed that he would not get involved in the matters of a married couple’s relationship, and a text was sent via the law firm to confirm this stance. Regardless of the situation, we express apologies for causing emotional pain to the involved individuals and bringing trouble to fans. Furthermore, as an agency with the duty to protect our artists, we ask for your understanding of the possibility that we may inevitably take legal action regarding excessive misunderstandings and speculations.
Honestly, I wasn’t even going to cover this except Starship formally denied it. The explanation seems reasonable enough, and even if it wasn’t, it’s seriously something that needs to be worked out with the husband and wife instead of with the company of the person she’s allegedly having an affair with. Like talk to your partner, dude.
Also, I noticed people are going around acting like Han Seo Hee being a bad person or malicious individual is brand new or something. Whether she’s telling the truth or not, she’s always been that, which is why comparisons between her and other “controversial” women were always asinine.
